ALN In The Community
We are always looking for ways to work with and support other great organisations in community settings encouraging people to enjoy being creative and expressing themselves. Whether that be during fun days offering everyone in the family an opportunity to get involved, add their ideas and be part of the story using props, costumes and lots of imagination like our work with Contact a Family.
Or bringing people together who have a shared interest in performing arts like the Hijinx students who we worked with to develop their performance skills, confidence building and team work, creating a company of student actors.

National Trust Bodnant Garden Community Banner Making
We want peoples’ voices to be heard; their stories told. Connecting our celebration performance at Bodnant to the community was vitally important. We wanted to celebrate womens protest and the important work done not just 100 years ago but now with issues which concern us today.
Our protest performance was not just a historical piece looking back but also reflecting forwards, it was important to us that modern womens’ issues would be highlighted at the event. By hosting banner making sessions in Eglwsbach and at Bodnant Garden we were able to connect, share stories and highlight important causes which affect people today.

Celebrating what’s positive about your community and the people who make it happen really brings everyone together. Our Community Superhero’s projects have encouraged schools to connect more with parents, celebrate the ‘everyday superhero’s’ in their lives and present work which offers an opportunity for everyone to come along and have fun together.
The federated schools Ysgol Mochdre and Ysgol Cystennin joined together to celebrate their Superheros creating with us a school fair on a beautiful warm Summers day. Leading up to the event children had been busy at our after-school club perfecting a Hero’s performance and working with local artist Alana Tyson to design their own capes and masks which they created with family members.

This project funded initially by the People’s Health Trust Health Diverse is all about bringing the community together; finding time to try something new and push individual boundaries. This group continues to flourish, welcoming people from all backgrounds and abilities to make new friends and find their voice through drama. The group has been invited to take part at a variety of community events including National Trust’s ‘Unbind the Wing’ event and Imagine Colwyn Bay. Our commitment to the group continues and we are always looking for new ways for our members to make space.
